July Artist of the Month- Musical
Les Délices (in English, The Delights) fosters, educates, and expands audiences for live chamber music on period instruments through dedication to underperformed repertoires in Cleveland, on tour, and through recordings and broadcasts. Critics have described Les Délices’ performances as “a beguiling experience” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) and The New York Times has commented, “Concerts and recordings by Les Délices are journeys of discovery.”
WHERE TO SEE THEIR WORK:
Les Délices made its New York debut before a sold-out audience at the Frick Collection in May 2010. Highlights from recent seasons included performances for Music Before 1800, Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, San Francisco Early Music Society, the Yale Collection of Musical Instruments, and at Columbia University’s Miller Theater. In addition to touring engagements, Les Délices presents its own annual four-concert series in Cleveland art galleries and at Plymouth Church in Shaker Heights, OH, where the group is Artist in Residence. Les Délices has been featured on WCPN, WCLV and WKSU in Ohio, WQXR in New York, NPR’s syndicated Harmonia and Sunday Baroque, and had their debut CD featured as part of the Audio-guide for a special exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art (Watteau, Music, and Theater). Les Délices 3rd CD, “Age of Indulgence,” was released on the Navona label in June 2017.
